This is more or less the final action report. The bedroom remodel is finished with the exception of one curtain. The darker curtain is the new curtain that my wife made and ther will be a replacement for the other curtain once she is finished. The carpet was installed by a local carpet guy, the carpet I had from the PO, and is the same carpet that the PO installed in the living room. I built the carpet covered baseboards and the carpet covered box over the wires and stuff on the roadside. The basebard heater is a 110V model that I installed in order to have electric heat in the bedroom.
Total costs. I am sure that I will forget something but here are some figures.
Plywood 4 sheets maple - $225
Plywood 2 sheets poplar ( bed base) $70
Birch lumber, 50 bd ft $110
Spar varnish, 1 Gal $65
Contact Cement, 4 Gal $200
Blue carpet to line closets, 4X 6'x8' -$120
Carpet install $100
Lights - $90
curtans material -$150
hinges - $25
Dump run to get rid of old cabinets - $30
wire and switches - $30
baseboard heater and Tstat - $70
paint brushes, applicator pads - $30

100's of hours of labour - priceless.

Biggest suprise was the amount of contact cement required. I am sure I have missed some expense.

Really looks great, Peter. You certainly have a talent for that sort of work. I don't believe ole' Bluebird could have done any better when your coach was running down the assembly line.

Ernie
Not this year. My son is in grade 12 and my daughter is in grade 9, so we have a couple of years to go before total freedom to travel. We made it last year and hope to make it again. I would really like to attend RATS at some point, but we will see what the future holds.
Thank you everybody for the kind words. It was a fun project, and corrected the one thing that the coach had that we really did not care for (twin beds). As you all know these things always need something, and if they don't, we will find something to do on them anyway. It is a great hobby, that I like working on.
